I spent about a month in Bonn Germany and got to see a fair amount of the city. The city center is relatively small so walking around is a viable option. Being able to walk around was good as my German language speaking skills didn’t exist.
If you would like to find out about the city, I recommend checking out
Wikipedia. And there is a good travel website Wikitravel which lists out all the places to visit, like Beethoven’s home.
As for this article, I have written a caption under each photo to give you an insight into my trip to ‘Bonn, Germany.’
Nothing like a map of the town center to find your way.
Bonn tower cranes #1
Love the fact that the crane is sitting on timber.
The first of two tower cranes.
This mobile crane was setting up a tower crane, lifting over the footpath without CLOSING the footpath.
Installing a tower crane on the Rhine river.
The completed tower crane on the Rhine river.
Love this guys jacket.
This piling machine was sitting on the outside of a 2.5 story hole.
Construction sites at night have a certain appeal about them.
I took a few photos in of this basement from over the fence. One guy beeped his horn at me. The Rhine river through Bonn
Can you find the three men looking out over the river? I didn’t notice them at first.
The Rhine river in Bonn looking towards Konigswinter forest.
Riverboat heading up the Rhine river. The ‘Love Bridge’
The River Rhine under what I call the ‘Love bridge’.
The bridge has padlocks all the way along both sides. Each padlock is engraved with dates and who loves who.
It is a little romantic seeing all the padlocks along the bridge.
Some more padlocks on the ‘Love Bridge’. I wonder if the love is still there between the lovers?
The ‘Love Bridge’ or as my friends called it the ‘Green Bridge’ in all its glory. Cathedral that calls Bonn home
Bonn’s Cathedral. I have no idea of its name. Compared to other cities I have visited, this one is a little underwhelming.
Bonn’s Cathedral side building. Wait till you see the heads that go with this building.
Bonn’s Cathedral by night. I think that it looks better personally.
I am guessing this has been left as more as a monument than anything else. Bonn’s Christmas markets 2017
Bonn’s Christmas markets had so much ‘Wurst’ it wasn’t funny.
There was always a crowd regardless the day of the week. The weekends were the worsts.
Even the stalls were crowded. The heads on this one moved to corals. Some of Bonn’s buildings
Bonn’s town hall stands out. Even without being told this is the town hall you can tell.
Bonn’s government building. Apparently, this was the old parliament building.
UN Building, I took a few photos and was expecting to get arrested.
The DHL post tower building can be seen from pretty much anywhere in Bonn.
DHL post tower has one of the nicest rear entry’s I have seen. No dodgy fire door here.
Old school timber building in the middle of the city center.
This is a random modern building. My photos don’t do the building justice.
The old buildings with a little bit of light shining on them come up a treat. Sculptures throughout Bonn city.
This sculpture when I first saw it, I hated it. It has slowly grown on me.
The twin heads are out the front of Bonn’s Cathedral. They make for so interesting photos.
This is random if you know what it is please let me know. I think it’s faces stacked on top of each other??
I got a kick out seeing this on the way to filming one of my earlier videos. I took so many photos of this piece train track. Random photos of Bonn Germany
When I first walked into this tunnel I thought of ‘Rompa Stompa” the movie. I took some photos as this old man was coming down the stairs behind me. I thought he was talking to me, I can’t be sure cause he was talking in German.
I just thought this was a cool photo. It’s a train line power pole.
I know bathroom photos are dodgy. But that had basin is awesome.
Something a little different. Flowers in the winter.
Not a lot of snow, but that made my morning seeing it.
